My other favorite show from that run is St. Paul 5-11-77

The venue was nearly 4 X that of the Auditorium (15,000 vs 4,000), but the sound in that old hockey arena was pretty clear with a nice mix from where I was sitting, and the band seemed more relaxed in St. Paul - relaxed, yet the playing is just as tight. If you've not heard this show yet, and since you are such an ardent fan of the Auditorium show, you owe it to yourself to have a nice sit down with this one. The Sugaree gets way out there, and from Uncle John's Band through Brokedown Palace is probably one of my most listened to segments of live Dead - a nice positive vibe, fairly chilled out for being the ending segment of the show, but that matters not as the music has a nice flow. That sequence has always been a favorite in the car.
